Battlestate Games’ first-person shooter, Escape from Tarkov, finally reached version 0.11. The game’s latest update adds tons of content, including a new map, new weapons, new equipment, new consumables and much more.
TerraGroup Labs, the new map, is based under the city of Tarkov, acting as a a secret underground facility. Another addition is a new Scav boss, Killa, equipped with all the necessities to be considered as a “very dangerous enemy.” Not only that, more than 100 new items were added to Escape from Tarkov, ranging from weapons and their respective attachments, to new equipment, like body armor, tactical vests, helmets and NVGs, and consumables. Here is a brief description of everything patch 0.11 brings to the game.
As TerraGroup Labs is considered to be closed, it has special types of extractions. New mechanics imply the need to meet certain conditions for the activation of the extraction. It is possible to activate extractions more covertly, discreetly, thereby reducing the chances of detection by Raiders, or loud, what will lead to activation of Laboratory announcement systems and will attract Raiders to the source of the noise.
Killa has good equipment, wearing heavy armor and hand-customized helmet. He is a very dangerous enemy. He uses a light machine gun or other automatic weapons to suppress the enemy while lurking from cover to cover, getting closer to his target for the final push. During the assault he moves in zig-zag manner, uses grenades, suppresses few enemies with the fire of his weapon, plants smoke cover on one enemy while attacking the other. Well, it’s going to be a tough fight to get him killed. By the way, he considers PMC’s and Scavs as his enemies.
With this patch we added lots of new quests for all traders and more than 100 new items: weapons and attachments like RPK-16, Remington 700 and some variations of Mosin rifle; melee weapons: knives and hatchets, ice axe and machete, tactical sword and entrenching tool; new equipment like body armor, tactical vests, helmets and NVGs. I want to highlight the fact, that it will be impossible to pick up a melee weapon from dead PMC’s now.
In other news, Escape from Tarkov is being adapted into a fictional book series, where the official translation of the first book can be expected as early as March or April of 2018 in the West.
Escape from Tarkov is out now for PC. You can check out the patch trailer below.
